My apologies fellow readers, but I absolutely hated the hero of this book. Especially when compared to the anti-hero. This was an extremely well-written Regency Romance. It is a traditional Regency complete with bona fide historical facts, names, and dates. All the characters were engaging, filled out, and felt real. King Cole was fabulous, the Dowager was amusing, and the two best friends were comical. The heroine was absolute perfection. The rival, the anti-hero, was smoldering and amazing. And I hated the hero. He had nothing good to recommend him. From 'go' he acted a perfect coxcomb. On top of it all was the forced, rushed wedding. It just made me ill. The Hero was a complete ass and the anti-hero that everyone loved to hate was a perfect gentleman. I wanted her to leave the hero and be with the rival. He seemed to know who, or at least what, she was from the beginning whereas the hero saw only what he wanted to see. I loved the book, I just wish the two male leads were switched. I feel very unsettled after reading this because I sincerely feel like the heroine was forced to take the wrong man. I would have chosen otherwise and while I know it is not my book, I feel like if she had gotten to choose she would have chosen otherwise too. Just because her father liked the hero does not make it right that he made the choice. And understanding that that was how it was done back then does not make it any more palatable. Aside from my personal romantic preference, this was a fantastic book and I strongly encourage all Regency Romance lovers to read this and all Ms Mills' works. Very very highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.

Like all of the books that have been written by Anita Mills this one is also a classic. It is obvious that she knows a great deal about the time period and has a great relationship with her characters. I highly recommend it.
When I read the two negative review of this book, I should have taken heart and not purchase it . How do I regret my folly and my money. This book is one of the worst book I have ever read. I hate the heroine with a passion. She is so stupid. Do not bother buying it it is a waste of time and money.
